“food quality changes”
Reviewed June 13, 2013

We have been eaten several times in the Restaurant and the food was good. Every time we order the same dishes as Take a Way - the do not only look different they also taste very poor.
The service is also rather slow.

“Not quite up to Mgarr's standards...”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

Far from a bad place to eat, just some way short of the excellence of the 5 other Mgarr restaurant we tried over our week in town! Some of the dishes were really good, particularly the lemon chicken. The service, though, let the meal down. Half of the main course arrived, but the other half - including, rather crucially, the rice - was delivered to the wrong table. Staff took a long time to sort this out, and weren't at all apologetic. In the meantime we started eating what was there - as you do - but without the rice it was like Ant without Dec (or something). The belatedly-arriving rice was also not that nice. So...fine, and we possibly caught them on an off-night, but given the fantastic eateries 2 minutes away, maybe try somewhere else?

“Under pressure but the food saves it”
Reviewed May 20, 2013

Went on a bad night service-wise. Something wrong out the back and way more people than you'd expect on a Monday night saw long delays. However, it wasn't hard to work out that there was a problem so we just waited patiently. The food certainly makes up for it. I've been travelling to Asia since the late 70s and had innumerable Chinese meals and this was up with the best, 000s of miles from where I'd expect it. Crisp, tasty dishes and far from the common stodge you get in many Chinese outlets. Wine prices not too bad either.

Service rating based on the quality of service with the delay ignored.

The waiter/maitre'd did apologise for the delays but there wasn't much he could do.

I would definitely return.

“small portions”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

I went to the Huan Yuan rest last weekend. I cant say that food wasnt really good but I felt little bit dissappointed with the portions when compared with the prices, Usually the staff offers even a discount for those who spend more then 50 euro . I spent 65 euro and I havent got any discount not even a coffee. I would like to send a message to the staff that the food is good but they have to take care for the customers too.
